from that page "SSS Similarity Theorem This theorem states that if the sides of two triangles are in proportion, then the triangles are similar."

no jim, all 3 pairs of sides need to form a proportion for SSS to work

SSS would have been my first choice....but AA works as well (you need to do a bit of work, not much though)

actually you just need 2 pairs and SSS works

all 3 pairs of sides need to have same ratio, jim. only 2 side ratios matching wont do for SSS

hmm this page is odd, they use SSS first, then SAS nvm, i guess it's not accurate go for AA
